Lowball 6/25 - 7/24

Lowball! takes a look at home sales over the past week from a very different perspective. For those new to Lowball!, a lowball offer is when a buyer offers a significantly lower bid than asking in hopes that the seller accepts the offer. We take a list of home sales over the past week and pick out the sales that have the highest percentage difference between asking price and selling price.

The purpose of Lowball! is to show buyers that the market has changed and buyers now have considerably more leverage than sellers. Just a short time ago, Lowball! offers would have been laughed at and discarded, however, not any more. The fact that so many under-asking offers are being accepted is clear proof that the market is changing.The list does not contain all sales, I hand-pick the most interesting sales from the list. These listings might be the highest dollar drops, biggest percentage reductions, or sales in towns that are thought to still be 'hot'. Please note, even with double digit percentage reductions, these homes are still incredibly overpriced.

As promised, here are the balance of the counties that were not included in the weekend edition of Lowball! (Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Warren). I've had some emails requesting that I post Lowball sales in lower price ranges. I'm going to take that approach this week, as well as keep it in mind for future Lowball! postings. In order to keep things brief, I've limited the list to the top lowball sale per town that fit the lower price range (Sub $450k).

On to the list!

May I respectfully suggest that Lowball! is pretty meaningless?

It's easy enough to find sellers with an inflated idea of what their house is worth. The fact that the house actually sells for considerably less says very little about the state of the market. Indeed, many of these sellers are still making quite a tidy profit.

What I'd like to see is evidence of real economic pain--something along the lines of Flips that Flopped! --houses bought in the last two or three years or so that are now on the market, or actually closing, at nearly the same price, or even less, than their purchase price.

SAS, if your out there since you have been the voice or reason recently on issues of 'who is posting what' based on their own personal biases... how do you respond to the fact that, in 30+ years of history (using OFHEO.GOV data) there has never been a correction, in 1 quarter, 1 year or 5 years of more than about 5% decline in NJ? By the way, i checked the data...NY,NJ and PA were all pretty well correlated. For me, then, this spells, no drama (major decline) and many,hopeless years of 'flatness' (ie '87 - '94) since the marginal homebuyer isnt big enough (ie 25% own their homes) to move prices that much without huge (and unlikely) changes in 30yr rates?

in terms of price stagnation or decline potential, it depends on 2 major factors. jobs and location. a summit will hold up better than a scotch plains. both will move in the same direction but at different slopes and lagging timeframes. how jobs versus psychological investor led run up's is related is the big unknown in today's climate versus past bubbles.

Friend of mine just a lowballed house in Manalapan. He lowballed 7-8%. The list price was around 700k, he got it for around 660k. (Don't know the exact numbers). It is a 4 bed 3 bath 12 yrs young on 1 acre.

He said it is a good deal because it is buyers market. And similar houses were going for 750k last year.

When I ask about his current townhouse in Marlboro. He said he hasn't sold it yet but he is not worry. He said everyone wants to buy in Marlboro especially in his development/school district. He said he will have no problem for getting last year's peak price of 550k. When I ask about buyers market and Marlboro, he said Marlboro is affected!!!!!!!!!

I am interested to see how this turns out.

It was listed Nov 2005 and withdrown on March 28th.. But so far no closing yet..

Another way to track price declines is to use townhomes as a proxy. What you need to do is to find a representative set of streets that share similar units, and track them using whatever tax system you prefer.

You can then compare sales based on assessed value. Works very well in large developments with a high number of similar units.

For example, looking at Riverwalk Drive in Clifton (Townhouse Complex).

Sales for Asses. Val: $236,100
12/1/2005 $449,000
1/5/2006 $444,0000

Sales for Asses. Val: $223,600
9/19/2005 $455,000
11/2/2005 $440,000
1/23/2006 $438,000

Anon @ 2:55,

If you are good friend to your buddy, you should have him

- cancel the contract on the SFD he just brought (if it is not past attorney review) yet
- put his townhouse in Marlton for sale
- once he gets an offer & contract and gets it past attorney review & post inspection negotiations, then he can start shopping for a house
- Assure him that the same SFD will still be available
- If the closings cannot be synced around the same time, tell him to move his stuff to a storage lot and live in a motel for a while
- He will at least save a few thousand dollars by going through the above but best of all, he will not lose his shirt trying to sell his townhouse while he has another mortgage.

Hi Grim
Great work! really missed this blog when I was on vacation. You know I found that appraisal report before I even found this blog, when I was searching for some answers as to what the He@@ was going on with real estate, even making a living from it, it is still mind boggling to me what has gone one the last 5 or so years. I just came back from wildwood, the flipping there is out of control. You have flippers selling property's for 100'grand more in same week they closed on it. So when the mortgage company for the gf looks at it it doesnt show sold in the last 6 months. Lot of shady stuff going on there.

I really respect this blog and here's a case in New Providence that I'd like your opinion on.

MLS #2279203

I offered $500,000 and my offer was rejected. Shortly after it went under contract ( i don't know for how much) and now it's back on the market.
Now, do you think 500,000 is a fair amount for this house or am I dreaming???

That house seems to be back in Attorney review. So someone finds the price fair. But its in a flood zone. If a house is beside a river or a stream, always, always check if its in a flood zone. That may be why it fell out of contract earlier.

anon 12:01,

I am eating a steak my beautiful wife just made me, so let me say this for now (I will explain more tomorrow....no...u don't have me by the short and curlys either, I just like a good steak..he .he)

How can you tell when a goverment economist is lying? He opens his mouth....

When was there a REAL surplus budget? not counting when the government silently stole from social security to make a surplus budget....Robbing Peter to pay Paul (however that saying goes).

WHen was the last time they count employment numbers and not counted the military as employed??

Get the drift..

I am not a statitician (I just hire them). But, you can always tweak data to say what you wanna say, also people like to give the data they want you too see...while simulataneously sweeping data under the rug, that they don't want you to see. All data should be taken with a grain of salt, even on this blog.

More to come, but now I gotta get back to my steak.

What cut and how served?

I've gotten hooked on the Luger's thing - porterhouse, medium rare.

I know that there are plenty of great places out there, but I have a Frankie & Johnnie's two blcoks away that does a very credible job.

I will always take a Steak Frites at some bistro, but they have to be "freedom" fries ;)

"how do you respond to the fact that, in 30+ years of history (using OFHEO.GOV data) there has never been a correction, in 1 quarter, 1 year or 5 years of more than about 5% decline in NJ?"

Tell that to the person across my street that bought in 87 for $484K and sold when he was transfered for $325K in 90. I think 88 t0 about 95 was really bad. Can only hope this thing doesn't hurt people worse this time.

This sale was the best so far


MLS# 2229002 - Montague, NJ
Original List Price $184,900
List Price $154,900
Sales Price $83,000 (46.4% Lowball, 55.1% off OLP)

Thats fantastic. More people should start bidding like this. The state would be such a better place

Hey , Anyone out there seriously interested in Buying or selling your house ? Go get listed in an MLS listing. Its very easy. and make sure to check all issues related to it in detail. And go for a flat fee listing and save yourself 2-3%. It is really great. I am very happy with the response I received for one of my property sale. I had listed with an MLS in Chicago. Actually I had a tough time deciding the best deal, coz I had such a lot of reply to my listing. They are very customer-friendly. Great Deal..... GO check it our and enjoy the sale of your property from the comfort of your home.
